by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cubs outfielder Emilio Bonifacio is not in Wednesday's starting lineup and is a possible trade candidate over the next 24 hours.

Bonifacio has been told to be prepared for a trade, though the team hasn't agreed to a specific deal yet, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. He has hit .279/.318/.373 with two home runs, 18 RBI and 14 stolen bases in 276 at-bats and offers positional versatility in the infield and outfield.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

A stiff back that forced Tigers shortstop Eugenio Suarez out of the game Tuesday has also kept him out of the lineup Wednesday against the White Sox.

Suarez, who has just five hits in his last 25 at-bats, owns a decent stat line of .260/.347/.394.

Chris Rusin joins Cubs Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Cubs recalled pitcher Chris Rusin from Triple-A Iowa Wednesday.

The team endured a 16-inning game Tuesday, so bringing up a bullpen reinforcement makes sense. They have yet to announce a corresponding move, but they may be able to clear a space if they trade Emilio Bonifacio before gametime Wednesday. Rusin has given up six runs in 8 2/3 innings over two games with the Cubs.

Rockies call up Rob Scahill, option Cristhian Adames
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Rockies called up pitcher Rob Scahill and optioned infielder Cristhian Adames Wednesday.

The team went through a 16-inning game Tuesday night, so extra help in the bullpen was needed for Wednesday's game. Adames went 0 for 3 in his debut Tuesday before being sent back down. Scahill has given up four earned runs in 5 1/3 innings over three appearances with the Rockies.

Ubaldo Jimenez on ankle after rehab start: 'It feels good'
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Embattled and injured Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez expressed satisfaction about his rehab start Tuesday for Class A Aberdeen despite allowing one run on five hits and three walks in 4 2/3 innings. Jimenez has been out since July 5 with a sprained ankle.

"Felt good," he told MASNsports.com. "I was able to get on the mound without thinking about my ankle. I was able to cover first base and third base, so I was able to do everything I was supposed to do. Got my pitch count all the way to 70-something pitches. The main thing was to see how the ankle would respond.

"It feels good. No complaints. Don't feel anything. Every time you hurt a part of your body it's not going to be like it was before right away. But I feel good to pitch."

Jimenez was a mess with the Orioles before going down. He managed just three quality starts in his last 10 outings for Baltimore as his record lowered to 3-8 and ERA rose to 4.52.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rockies shortstop Josh Rutledge is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Cubs, but he is available in an emergency situation, MLB.com reports.

Rutledge missed Monday and Tuesday due to an illness, and it seems like he's getting better, as the team optioned a reserve infielder Wednesday. He has hit .307/.358/.486 with three home runs and 19 RBI in 140 at-bats.

Robbie Grossman goes deep in first to help bury Oakland
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Robbie Grossman has just two hits in his last 17 at-bats for the Astros, but the second of those hits was a doozy. It traveled over the fence in the first inning to complete a blitz that gave his team a 6-0 lead.

Grossman also walked twice in the rout to improve his on-base percentage to .313, which is strong when considering he owns a .195 batting average. He has 29 walks in 170 at-bats this season.

Jon Singleton shines light in midst of darkness with home run
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Astros first baseman Jon Singleton has still not achieved a multi-hit game since July 8, but he certainly made the most of his one hit in a Wednesday rout of Oakland. It left the yard for his eighth homer of the season.

The two-run blast in the fifth inning was merely the cherry on top of an 8-1 victory. Singleton has just five hits in his last 44 at-bats.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson completed a "good" bullpen session Wednesday and he is ready to return to the rotation, the Orange County Register reports.

Wilson will likely be activated from the disabled list Saturday to start against the Rays. He has been out since July 9 while recovering from an ankle injury, though he did strike out seven while giving up two runs in 5 1/3 innings in Monday's rehab start.
